Embroidery in a hoop.
I will introduce you to the works of Jessica Long. When she was on maternity leave she began to make damask embroidery, creating her own ways of framing finished works. She works as the brand Namaste Embroidery.
Jessica embroiders plants that she draws from real ones. She also embroiders cute animals, birds and portraits.
"Double Hoop" is one of the ways of framing, suggested by Jessica, when you use hoops of different diameters as a frame. She puts the same piece of fabric in a small hoop first, and then in a large one. She does it from different angles, giving it depth and space in space. This method allows her creating layered and dimensional, picture-in-picture works. A pattern on the outer ring can be an individual décor or a frame for photos and paintings.
Here is a video which shows the process of how to put fabric in double hoops and how to frame the finished embroidery.
Jessica shows another way to frame the finished embroidery in the inner part of the hoop. You get a round embroidery, which can be arranged in a frame or just hung as it is!
She sells ready-made kits for embroidering:
